Paging Dr. Chewbacca...We have a donor!


CHICAGO (Circa)- A very special pediatric doctor has found a way to bring a smile to his patients faces in a unique way, dressing as Chewbacca, according a report by CBS Evening News.

The report says Dr. Philip Thrush is a big "Star Wars" fan and pediatric doctor at the Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. When he found out that one of his young patients was about to receive a much needed heart transplant he wanted to deliver the amazing news dressed as Chewbacca.

Thrush views the simple theatrics as lightening the mood during very trying times for young children.
